Market Overview

A number of factors, such as continuous technological advancements in 3D printing, rising public and private investments to develop new 3D printing technologies and applications, and rising acceptance of 3D-printed organs and implants are fueling the demand of this market in the European region. In addition, increasing demand of organ transplantation, strong mergers and acquisitions to enhance market share, and expiry of key patents are offering new growth opportunities for existing market players and new entrants in the global 3D printing medical devices market in the European region. However, high cost associated with advanced 3D printers, lack of both structured regulatory frameworks and reimbursement policies, and copyright and patent issues associated with the 3D printing of patented products are expected to impede the market growth in the European region.

Scope of the Report

3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing (AM), utilizes a layer-by-layer addition technique to produce physical objects from a 3D digital file. The 3D printing technology caters to the rising demand for personalized medical care, by providing customized medical devices based on individual needs. 3D printing has begun to flourish in various domains of healthcare, such as dental, medical, implants, drug manufacturing, and so on. The materials used for these purposes vary accordingly. While dental implants mostly use metals and ceramics to print dental crowns, the medical industry has its own array of biomaterials. 3D printing can be used to make 3D printed models of patients’ organs plan and practice complex surgeries. It is relatively new and rapidly expanding application in healthcare.

Key Market Trends

Materials Segment is Dominating the European Healthcare 3D Printing Market

Titanium alloy and pure titanium are the most preferred and most bio-compatible metallic material for a biomedical implant. Titanium alloy, like Ti6Al4V, improves strength and has resistance to corrosion. However, it is important to consider that the high elastic modulus in titanium cause an elastic mismatch among the bones and the implant. Overall, titanium is one of the most adopted metals for 3D printing for medical applications. The market for titanium and titanium alloy-based 3D printed medical devices is expected to witness the highest CAGR, during the forecast period. The companies are researching for development of the 3D printed craniofacial implants and titanium vertebrae. Renishaw is one of the bigger players in the 3D printing market; the company utilizes a range of metals, like stainless steel and titanium, nickel, and aluminum alloys. Thus, the European market is expected to show an increasing trend, during the forecast period.
